So, John Romero, one of the creators of the original Doom games, is releasing an unofficial fifth edisode, named Sigil, for the original Doom. It'll be released as a free mod in February, 2019, as well as limited physical editions with some fairly cool stuff.

Here's some more material if you want to learn more:

So, any thoughts on this? Personally I think this seems fairly cool. I think the 'proper' soundtrack comes only with the expensive ($40 or $166, depending on the edition) physical release though, which is a pity, but otherwise, I'm definitely not complaining. Oh, you do get Romero's head on a spike with the more expensive edition, so there's that.

Definitely something to look forward to. I find there's something intangible that makes the original creators' maps special, so to have a whole new set in that same vain is a very enticing prospect for sure.



*My signature from 2011 which I'm too lazy to change*

Currently awaiting the arrivals of:
Kid Icarus Uprising
Resident Evil: Revelations
Tekken 3D: Prime Edition
Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D
Beyond the Labyrinth
Heroes of Ruin
Luigi's Mansion 2

It's free. Although you need the original Doom. The engine is free for a long time and has many spinoffs, ports and extension that allow to play Doom on modern machines. But you probably need the original WAD for assets.

What's Blackroom?

Blackroom was announced back in 2016 that John Romero and fellow id Software co-founder Adrian Carmack were working on. Supposed to be an ode to old school FPS games in the modern day, but haven't heard anything for almost 2 years now

Physically? Yes. In the game? I have no idea.
